Dr Oz: Hair Loss Remedies & Cures
While learning more about hair restoration scams and hair surgery clinics, Dr Oz wanted to shine a light on thinning hair and hair loss. He reported that by the age of 50, up to half of the population could experience thinning hair. Not balding, but more subtle thinning like a wider part and a more noticeable scalp. Fortunately, Dr Oz dedicated time on his show to share thinning hair breakthroughs, such as Ketoconazole “Anti-Dandruff” Shampoo and Minoxidil 5% foam, plus instant hair styling secrets for anyone suffering from thinning hair.
When Should You Start Worrying About Thinning Hair?
Dr Oz sat down with Dr Dendy Engelman, a dermatologist, who said a good way to get an idea of whether thinning hair could be in your future is to look at your female relatives. The second you see thinning hair the exact time you should act on it, because according to Dr Engelman, by the time you notice your hair is thinning, you’ve already lost 30-40% of your hair density. As soon as you notice, it’s time to do something about it. Dr. Oz’s best hair thinning secrets are on the next page…
Dr Oz: 5% Minoxidil Foam For Thinning Hair
There’s an FDA-approved drug for women called Minoxidil. In 2015, Minoxidil was approved in the male strength of 5% Minoxidil. That 5% is needed in order to really enhance hair growth Minoxidil is available over-the-counter and is applied twice a day. It’s a foam that works to increase blood flow, oxygen, and nutrients to the follicle to decrease shedding and encourage growth. If you tried the 3% product marketed to women two years ago, it’s worth it to try the stronger strength again. You should use the product for three months before you expect results.
Dr Oz: Ketoconazole Dandruff Shampoo For Hair Loss
Dr Engelman also recommended ketoconazole, which is a shampoo readily available at drug stores. It’s a shampoo that was originally meant to treat dandruff so look for the ingredient next time you shop for shampoo. It works as an anti-inflammatory to stop hair loss and promote thicker hair. Use the shampoo 3-4 times a week for about three months to notice results.
Dr Oz: Minoxidil 5% for Women
Dr Oz spoke to a young woman who started using Minoxidil in early 2016. She saw results within a month and stopped using it after three months but when she noticed her hair falling out, she started using it again and has loved her results ever since. Admittedly, I suffered from hair loss after the birth of my son and have been using Minoxidil for about a year now with great results!
